Ultrafiltration at the forefront of membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology
Newterra is at the forefront of membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology and its use in a wide range of wastewater treatment applications. Membrane bioreactors combine conventional activated sludge (CAS) treatment with a membrane liquid-solid separation process – thereby eliminating both the cost and space requirements of secondary clarification, aeration and filtration. Membrane ultrafiltration is widely applied to work camps, municipalities, developers and resorts, and for food & beverage processors.
MBR Technology is transforming sewage Into Reuse-Quality water
The treatment process
The flow of incoming sewage varies by time of day. The Equalization tank balances out peak flow events to ensure a steady & homogenized flow rate. Physical treatment is on the incoming sewage to remove nuisance debris.
Air is continuously added through diffusers to maintain an aerobic environment where suspended bacteria oxidize organics and ammonia. For more stringent effluent criteria, dentrification and/or phosphorus removal can be incorporated.
Mixed liquor is drawn through the MicroClear® membranes, which act as a physical barrier to suspended solids, bacteria, viruses and protozoa.

The Basic Building Block
Our water treatment systems are based on our MBR MCXL2 filter, which has a membrane surface area of 8 m².
A variety of filter modules configured to the need of each plant
Its innovative design allows it to be configured in groups of 10 to 125 filters to fit into any tank. This flexibility allows us to effectively tailor to the customer requirements. We have more than 32 different module sizes available.
